Ingredients

How to make it

  • Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With an electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar; beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla. With mixer on low, add flour and salt in two additions, beating until just combined.
  • Generously coat two 8 1/2-by-4 1/2- by-2 1/2-inch loaf pans (1 1/2 quarts each) with cooking spray; I immediately pour in batter (pan will seem full). Tap pans on work surface to eliminate any large air bubbles.
  • Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out almost clean, 60 to 75 minutes (if the tops begin to brown too quickly, tent with aluminum foil).
  • Cool 10 minutes in the pan. Turn out the cakes; cool completely, with top sides up, on a wire rack.
  • Variations
  • You can also bake the batter in a 4-quart tube or Bundt pan. Increase the cooking time by about 5 minutes.
